Rescue Me ID: 15-05-22-00082Eoyore (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Once abandoned in a vacant house by my 'so-called' family, my tiny pack-mate and I were named Eeyore (me) and Piglet (him) by the New York City shelter staff. However, my new foster mom said she thinks I should be called Einstein. And, not because I have a head of unruly white hair, because I do not. But, because I am the smartest pittie boy she has ever had the pleasure to work with! I assure you, those were her words, precisely. I gather my appearance can be misleading. My eyes droop in such a way as to suggest dopiness. I am eager to please and know, Sit, Down, Wait, and Come. I pick up on new commands very quickly. I sit and wait before ... (Read More)I eat my meals and before going in and out of doors. When I meet other dogs outside of the home am fine, however, within the home, I prefer other dogs to maintain calm and I correct them if they become overly excited. I consistently look to my humans for guidance and will follow their directions attentively. I am completely relaxed, non-destructive and housetrained, therefore, I am trusted alone in my room when my people are at work during the day, as well as through the night. When my people are home, I enjoy being close to them while they caress my soft velvety fur. I am initially fearful of strangers, so when visitors arrive I sit and wait, and my foster asks them to enter the home and just ignore me . . . and when I become comfortable enough to approach them, they give me treats. When I am out walking in public, I pay close attention to my human pack leader and to the task at hand, walking on leash-I am not distracted passing by other dogs or humans walking or biking. Now that it's summer, I also discovered that I enjoy cooling off in the water. Eeyore was emaciated when he was rescued from that abandoned house. It is estimated that he went without food for at least three-weeks. Understandably, he has some protective food guarding issues with other animals (not with people) which should resolve with a little more time trusting that he knows he has another meal coming, and with continued training. Eeyore would do best in a quiet and calm home which is why we are recommending a home without young children. Eeyore needs a confident leader so that he won't take on the role of pack 'protector.' His foster mom will provide training assistance to the person(s) that adopt him to ensure that he is successful in his new home. Eeyore's foster mom's final comment, 'He is a very good boy that deserves the best of homes.' Eeyore is a 55lb 5-year-old male Pit Bull. He is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-11-00615Louise (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Geez, Louise! This petite brindle beauty is Louise. Louise is housetrained and is learning to walk well on leash . . . pulling a little, but getting better all the time. Louise listens intensely to her people and is eager to please and motivated by treats. She knows sit, wait and no; and is working on, come, off, lay down, back up, off, and leave it. Louise enjoys hard plastic chew toys and her foster mom bought a collection of Nylabones, special for her. If no one wants to play, Louise will happily entertain herself by dropping or tossing her toys and pouncing on them. Louise is fearful of sudden loud noises and reacts by jumping, crouching ... (Read More)and looking for reassurance from her person. Louise plays well with dogs her own size or larger, with whom she is submissively playful and respectfully reads social cues. But, those other pests, I mean, 'pets' also known as 'cats or small animals . . .' Louise is best not living with them. Little Louise loves her Lilliputians (children). She needs to be reminded to be gentle, but she is really very sweet: inviting them to play, accepting their patting and giving them love and kisses. Louise is happy to have big people play with her too. Sometimes she will invite play by nibbling on her people, and she needs reminders to use more appropriate methods. Louise sleeps in her crate at bedtime, and when her people are out. Louise is not vocal or whiney, but when she does let out a bark, the sound is so adorable that it evokes laughter. Louise has not exhibited any issues around food, but also has not been 'tested,' as she and her pack are routinely fed separately. She certainly has no problem with people sticking their hands inside her dish when she is eating. Louise is adoringly called 'Lou Lou' by her foster family. She has a happy-go-lucky personality, is easily corrected and loves pleasing her people. Louise's foster mom admits that, while she has enjoyed all of her fosters, that Louise has become her favorite. She tells us, she will be sad to let her go, but Louise deserves the best family possible. And, with just a little bit of training, Louise will be a fantastic dog for most any family. Louise completed treatment for heartworm disease. She is now a busy ball-chasing, toy tossing dog. She will require monthly heartworm prevention medication and annual testing. Louise is a 30lb 2-year-old female Pit-bull. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes. Please visit us at www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    In addition to causing cool people to break out in song, Lola is a very well-behaved girl who walks well on leash and knows sit, come, shake, stay and kisses. Lola is housetrained. When her people are out, she stays in her crate. While Lola complains vocally at first, and is initially disappointed in being crated, once she realizes that you will return, she is fine. She is a little standoffish at first. But once you've earned her trust, Lola is affectionate, joyful, playful, and eager to please. Lola has been fostered with young school-aged children. Lola's favorite game is fetch. Summer is here and the time is right for Ray Davies and the ... (Read More)Kinks on the radio, a Frisbee, the beach, and a dog like Lola! El-oh-el-aye Lola la-la-la-la Lola! Lola is a 34lb one-year-old female Lab-Pit mix. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. We are always looking for foster and/or adoptive homes.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-22-00090Sallie (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is shy sweet Sal. Sallie was rescued from a southern shelter where she had been over-looked, for too long. She wants to trust people, but she is unsure. When first meeting people Sallie is fearful. But, if allowed to take her time, she will be sitting in your lap cuddling within an hour. Sallie requires slow introductions with people and pets. At first she didn't know where she fit in with her foster pack. But with each introduction and interaction she gains in both trust and confidence. She is a natural beta/follower. She could live in a home with another dog given proper introductions. She does especially well with the alpha male in ... (Read More)her foster home. Sallie also does well with dog-savvy cats, and really likes the confident Maine Coon, who fears nothing. Confidence seems to be the key to Sallie's success. Sallie is unsure of herself and it can cause her stress. When Sallie is overwhelmed, she will put herself in her crate if the door is left open. But, sometimes Sallie likes to play . . . sometimes, even, by herself! She likes chew toys and rope toys. She will play tug with a friend or toss the toy for herself. Sallie knows, off (as in, get off the furniture) and down (as in, lay down), she will also, come and wait (as in, wait quietly even while five other dog bounce eagerly to go outdoors). Sallie, however, will NOT sit. Sallie takes treats with great gentility. Sallie stays in her crate when her people are out. She is housebroken and has free-run of the home when her people are home, and all night. Sallie will even sleep next to the other dogs in the house, now. Sallie has begun blooming since arriving in her foster home, several weeks ago. She will continue to blossom in the right environment. Sallie's ideal home will have older or no children, and a couple who enjoy moderate activity and will invest a little time in basic obedience class. And, like the Wilson Pickett song lyrics to Mustang Sally, 'All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride . . .' Our Sallie, LOVES to ride quietly, laying down in the back seat. Sallie is a 45lb 2-year-old Retriever-Pit/mix. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Please visit www.pottersangelsrescue.com to fill out an adoption or foster application. (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed 

    Macee is a 1 1/2 year old Blue Pit bull. Macee came in when she decided chasing cats was too much fun to stop doing. Macee loves people. She can be a bit choosy about her canine companions and seems to prefer males to females. Macee came in with mange and a skin infection. She is fully healed but it will take sometime for her fur to grow back. Macee is currently on a grainfree diet and may need to continue with it. Macee lived with a 13 year old child and would do great as a family pet with children of the same age or older.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    'Millions of peaches, peaches for me! Millions of peaches, peaches for free!' While this song may be the first thing that pops in your head when you hear her name, there is only ONE Peaches for you! And this girl is it! Soft, sweet, (and slightly fuzzy!) Peaches certainly lives up to her name! She will smother you in juicy kisses for just a few rubs and pats- always happy, tail wagging away! This well behaved girl is great with kids and dog-savvy cats, and does well with dogs of all sizes. Inquisitive at first, she settles down quickly and loves to play chase and tug-o-war with her foster sister. Peaches was recently introduced to 6 new ... (Read More)dogs, as well as horses, on a farm visit with her foster family. She behaved wonderfully and did not blink an eye or care about the large equines that walked around her. While her people are away during the day she stays in her crate, but is free to roam the house when they are home, including at night. Peaches loves people and other dogs and wants to be where they are. She is wonderful with the small children in her foster home, even giving them kisses to help clean their faces! Her foster family reports she settles into routines very quickly and knows when it is dinner time, bed time, and knows to go potty and come right back in the house. Peaches is a very smart girl- she knows sit, come, lay down, leave it, shake, and wait! When told 'crate' she will find it and go inside. She is quiet and chews only on her toys. She is house trained, knows all about the crate, AND walks well on leash! There is no sweeter deal than this peach!! Peaches is a 3 year old, 45 lb pit mix. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. Please visit www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an adoption or foster application. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered and up to date on shots. Adoption fee applies. (Less)

    Hello! My name is Ladybug. I am a 1 year old Pitbull who came to Vermont recently because my previous owners in Massachusetts loved me, but could not take good care of me. I am in a happy and safe temporary home now, but I am still looking for my forever home! I just want to love and be loved! I am a special, beautiful girl who needs to be in a home where there are no other dogs, although I am good with children. Also, I need to be with someone who will provide me with training and leadership. I am eager to please, and I am eager to learn. I am very smart, and although I am not trained, I learn quickly. Right now, I am trying to perfect ... (Read More)potty training, and it has been over a week since I have had an accident in the house! My favorite thing to do is cuddle, but I also have a lot of energy and need a lot of exercise. I have a laid back temperament and a clean bill of health.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Oliver is a silly, loud breathing, snaggletoothed cutie who has moved with me from Pennsylvania, to San Francisco, and now Vermont! We've been together for a good portion of my childhood, but I am moving back to California and there aren't options for us outside of rehoming while I'm still here. Read on for details- He is a 65 lbs, 11 year old Staffordshire Terrier with a beautiful brindle coat. He is potty trained and neutered, with a great reputation at the vet. He is an older dog, so he sometimes moves slow in the morning and at night. For the most part he's quiet and loves to sleep, but he can still ... (Read More)enjoy a good walk. He loves to play with tennis balls and sticks. He does extraordinarily well with children. I have grown up with this dog! Oliver and I moved out to California in 2011 when I was 15. Since then he's lived with my aunt and uncle, their two children (at the time 5 and 7 years old), and one other dog who Oliver did just fine with. Since then he's done great living with 2 (fairly grumpy) dogs. He needs to be let out about once every two hours, or he has trouble holding his pee. He comes with a crate to be put in when nobody is home. I am a 19-year-old starting my life, and rehoming Oliver will be a good step towards that. Thank you for reading! Please feel free to contact!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Vermont
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.
